Part of the sideshow in the Saab revival circus has been the waning and waxing fate of the Saab Museum Trollhättan, Sweden. The U.S. Heritage Collection was sold to two U.S. collectors earlier this year, while the Swedish museum's collection was rescued from breakup by three Swedish interests: the city of Trollhättan, SAAB AB and The Wallenberg Foundation.

With stipulations that its cars can only be displayed at the museum or regionally on occasion, the new museum opened its doors this weekend with the full complement of so-called quirky autos. It's open just about every day this year save for a week in June and the Christmas holidays.

Meanwhile, over at the main event, a joint bid involving BAIC and Panasonic appears to have joined the melee, while we wait on the results of bids from Youngman and Mahindra. We can only hope the Saab car company shares in the same good fortune as the museum.

      Too bad they didn't manage to release the new 9-5 wagon and the all-new 9-3.

      I give it 10 years. By then, all the SAAB faithful will have moved one and no one will care.

        If the company does fold it will probably be held up even higher in the 'SAAB faithful's' minds, and maybe others. I say humanely put it down. All this to-ing and fro-ing and GM inputting has just cheapened a once interesting marque.
